 I was shocked to see how many posts that poor woman who has a delima with her bf and dd has and saw people posting that are not part of this group and don't even have adult kids.  Since when can anyone post?  I mean really, some one who has a 6 yr old can not have the same perspective as us.

It's only in open CM groups..and some private groups have open forums that non members can reply in too

 I feel awful for her.  Can't a person remove their own post?  She probably did not expect that would get her a Sapphire status.  I have not ventured to far on CM but I do see that some groups will not let you view posts unless you are a member.

I think because it became one of the CM featured posts (not just featured in our group) it opened it up for anyone to comment on. Personally I'm not crazy about that feature. I belong to a few select groups for a reason.

She can remove her own post if she wants,
Member owned groups can allow members only to see posts.
They can also lock/unlock ..
I think the other CM owned groups are all open & are featured often.
This would lead to people able to post without joining:)

I know I was appalled a year or so ago when this happened - I, too, thought you had to be a member of our group to post here.  I was thinking wow these girls are awfully YOUNG to be joining Moms With Adult Kids - who is allowing them to join?!  They have no business here!  Then someone explained how it works. for the most part, our posts will be just us, but every now and then, a post could be opened to everyone.

Actually, in this case, though, even though her post got rather slammed  - I found some of the responses from the young girls WHO HAD MOTHERS WHO DID CHOOSE A MAN OVER THEM to be a very interesting perspective.  I even posted a separate post here addressed to her about it but so far as I can tell she hasn't replied to it.  With her post, though, having it opened to all of CM brought a bit more depth to the replies.
